that slimmer thing. we have a special hour. hello, america. i found out that the only people that will tell you the truth on what could happen and the only people that really know are friction authors. they have to know what is really going on so they can weave a story in that is believable. they will also tell you the truth. they have nothing to gain. one of my favorite fiction authors is here and we will spend an hour with him. i think you are going to hear truths that you don't hear very often. most days, i think our main worry is how is your job? you got your job still? the economy is a giant debt wierer's saddling on to our grandkids and the marxists in the white house and the people in washington who are supposed to be representing us, and especially as tough as times are now, now is not the time to take our eyes off of national security. i have several friends that are in special forces, and they have told me, and they have taught me history, history that we know being onto other side of the coin. our country in the past has infiltrated our enemy's borders, sowing the seeds of discontent
rate, improve america's image in the world, promote stability, and chip away at extremism. madam speaker, i hope that president obama will keep this in mind as he reviews his options on afghanistan and makes his decision in the coming weeks. america simply cannot afford to rely on our military's power alone because that strategy plays right into the hands of the extremists. our heavy military footprint is beating the insurgency -- is feeding the insurgentcy in afghanistan not weakening it. we can stop violent extremism in its tracks and we can keep our troops safer and build a more peaceful world for our children and our grandchildren. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. mr. moran of kansas. >> madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from washington rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to claim mr. moran's time. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> without objection. >> madam speaker, the democrat health bill is not about lowering costs or making health care more affordable, it's about government control and
the lives of livelihoods of every person in america. for many that means higher taxes and for even more, it will mean an unprecedented intrusion of federal government bureaucrat into the way we receive health care. this is a fundamental erosion of our freedom. the great freedom fighter abraham lincoln gave a speech in springfield, illinois, in 19 -- in 1838 where he touched on the idea of the loss of freedom. he was very explicit. he explained that our country could one day suffer a los of freedom, not by an outside attack, but from within. i'll quote what lincoln said and then give it in its larger context. at what point, then is the approach of danger to be expected? i answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. it cannot come from abroad. its destruction be -- if destruction be our lot, we must ourselveses be its author and finisher. as a nation of free men, we must live through all times, or die by suicide. the larger context of those words is as follows. in the great journal of things happening under the sun, we, the american people, find our account running, under d

for debate. how many people in america know that the reason we are here is because the republicans don't even want to bring the bill to the floor for debate and amendment. while, that's their right under the rules of the senate is their right. they can filibuster, deily, obstruct. they can say no. but just as surely as that is their right it is our responsibility as democrats to move this bill forward. i would remind my colleagues on the other side of the ogle that last year voters overwhelmingly voted for barack obama to lead changes, to make changes, and one of the changes he campaigned so hard for most changes in the health care system. and just as surely voters elected democrats to majorities, big majorities in the house and senate to do the same thing so it's our responsibility to lead. and that's what we are doing now by bringing this bill to the floor. we are taking another giant step toward fulfilling the mandate, the mandate the people of this country gave to president obama and the democratic party last november to undertake a comprehensive reform of america's health care system. an

in their brains. if the american flag offends people in america, i suggest those people find a flag they like better and take the next flight one way to where that flag flies. [ applause ] i'd be in favor of taking some of bail-out and stimulus money that the government wants to spend and use it to stimulate people who hate the flag and bail them out in the country of their choice. it's said you can't cure being stupid. even government healthcare won't fix that. to those who don't like what the american flag represents, i have to wonder what is it about freedom that you find offensive? that flag represents the sacrifice of men and women who put on the uniform and given lives to empower us to know freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly. they don't hate that flag. i'm grateful for it and what it represents. i proudly pledge my allegiance to that flag and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. for those who hold it in contempt -- [ applause ] -- i hope you do more than leave the gym.

before i leave. there's some really good news for america out here on the job front and clean energy. two weeks ago on the microsoft campus out in washington state i drove a ford focus which will probably be the first american mass-produced all elk trick vehicle. this car is the bomb. when americans get an all electric car and understand how much torque an all electric car can generate, these things are like -- this is the fastest car since i was in my buddy's chevy 404 in 1968. when you hit the pedal, it's not a gas pedal, the accelerator, they'll still call it a gas pedal, unbelievable power is generated because an electric engine gives you immediate torque, internal combustion engine you have the pistons. electricity is immediate torque. everybody's been talking about electric cars because they are so efficient they can wean 9 oil addiction which is so dangerous to us. they can reduce global warming. what americans are going to really love is how fast they are and the acceleration you get from them. that's going to be a real fun thing about them. the good news is we now have an opport
